Boom Stand legs feature heavy-duty bracing and a wide footprint of 43″ for extra stability. The black anodized aluminum Combo Stand ships with a 5/8″ reversible spigot and an empty Cordura nylon sandbag counterweight capable of holding 15 lb of ballast.
The also features a leveling leg for rough or uneven terrain. An empty sandbag counterweight is provided and strongly recommended (filled) when using the stand in boom mode.
A type of stand for hands free mounting of microphones, camera,mobile,lighting, softboxes or other similar devices. Unlike a traditional microphone stand. Which consists of a heavy base and a straight pole to mount the mic atop, a mic stand will have an extendable arm. Which reaches out from the top of the stand, allowing the stand to be farther away from the person using it.
USE A LIGHT STAND WITH A BOOM ARM TO MAKE AN EASY OVERHEAD CAMERA RIG.There are so many different ways to mount a camera for overhead shots. But it always surprises me both how many people don’t know how they can do it. And whenever a video shows another method. They’re also easy to connect other things to, like a grip head and arm. These are normally used for attaching things like flags, reflectors or holding a light for a beauty dish or softbox
you’ll need a counterweight on the short end to balance things out, but overall, it’s an elegant minimal solution. Especially given that many photographers and filmmakers will either already have these items, or something pretty close to it.
If you try this with a lightweight light stand, you may want to weigh down the base a little, too.
